    If Caliprince needs more support tell him Uncle Piney has his back, if not aunt Sandy does.

    Much appreciated, @piney :) I will definitely let him know.

    @dbcooper - good tip!

    Glad you received your order. I didn't think they would ship so soon.

    Way to close the loop.  Always glad to help budding entrepreneurs.  And thanks for the reminder.  We are now into the October shipping  window for all the chocolate coated things I ordered.  
    Stay healthy and safe out there-

    For those who may have ordered chocolate products thru Trail's End, I just received this email:
    "We wanted to provide an update on your Trail's End order containing chocolate. Due to unseasonably warm weather, we were unable to begin shipping orders containing chocolate products until mid-October. We are working to ship all pre-order purchases as quickly as possible and expect to ship your product by November 5th. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience. "
    Hold on just a bit longer-

    My daughter's friend's dad and her brother knocked on my door asking me to buy popcorn yesterday.  I reluctantly signed up for a can (I hate door to door fundraisers since I was a kid).  My question is how big of a can is it because it was $25?

    If I could have simply handed the kid cash instead I would have because I don't really want what they are selling and would rather have 100% of the donation go to scouts, not a popcorn manufacturer.

    Its cooled down quite a bit here, in the past 2 weeks, so hoping you don't receive a bagged clump of chocolate :)

    Are they selling for Cub/Boy Scouts? We only had bagged products - no tins. I think the popcorn was in 9oz bags (regular size of Lay's chips,  from the grocery store, was 7.75oz).

    My understanding is that about 1/3rd is the cost of the product. 1/3rd to BSA, 1/3rd to the scout troop. 

    With Boy Scouts, there's  an option to donate to American Heroes ($30, $100, $250, or other). No popcorn, and the scout and troop supposedly get credit for the full amount. 

    But, this is all least about the popcorn. It would have been far cheaper/easier/quicker for me to have paid the dues (popcorn sales offset annual dues), and to just buy the prize that caliprince wanted.
